Mail and checks stolen from outdoor mailbox at Hammonton Post Office

Hammonton Police say someone stole mail and checks from an external mailbox located at the Hammonton Post Office.

Police say they're working with US Postal Inspectors investigating the incident.

Police aren't saying how they discovered that something bad happened, but it appears the mailbox was tampered with over the President's Day weekend. They say mail placed in the box as outgoing mail was taken.

According to Hammonton Police, "Checks were taken and altered, causing financial theft and fraud from area residents and businesses. "
